Much Money for Mediocre Martial arts
I found a website that is either one of two things;
- An online shop where the arts of the McDojo can be aquired
- An online shop where aspiring McDojo owners go to be ripped off
The link is http://www.small-dojo-big-profits.com/

My reasoning behind posting this is simple. If people start McDojo's its pretty bad for those sucked in and those trying to compete honestly and who have something to offer. Its a damn sight worse when people start McDojos and actively recruit or convince others that brightly coloured belts and flashy moves are the way to make a fast buck.
On the other hand it could be another internet scam promising things it just cant deliver such as "Become Superman in just 5 days!" Which although is pretty low, it could be argued that ripping potential McDojo runners off is a good thing and this may prevent them from succeeding.
The site is run by "Michael D. Massie" Author - "Small Dojo, BIG Profits"
His guarentee hes not a con artist goes along the lines of "Its ok im a martial artist, just like you!"
NOTE: Im unsure as to whether this is valid. If it has already been posted I used the search function and got a total of 0 direct hits on the guy.
Don't you hate it when the first response in your virgin thread is something completely irrevelent?
I instantly recognized this guy and his school from another thread here.

"I have really been loving your book! It has resolved a lot of confusion for us. You break all the basics down into simple language and usable material. You also seem to have completely eliminated the need for huge marketing companies, billing companies, etc. Thanks for putting things into perspective."
It's kind of like the self-help **** that people do. The poor saps pay thousands to go to seminars that can supposedly teach you how to make millions in a year, yet they end up screwed becasue they quit their job to start an online counterfeit sock drawer business and, because it's about self-help, they blame themselves for not trying hard enough.

Big suprise there. I wonder if they taught him that 12 year old senseis in photoshopped glamour pics would get him more business.

I think they follow Tony Robbins, and no, since this particular business model doesn't care about franchising.
